Do you all think one of the don hume velcro closing belt will hold good enough?I 've always used the type that has the buckles on it.I am thinking about ordering one. Thanks. sj

Not sure about the Don Hume belt but I'd go with a Wilderness nylon, velcro gun belt instead for just a bit more.

I have found velcro ok for an under belt for duty belt uses , but have found that if worn alone the velcro wont hold up over the long haul , for the price of a ccw useable belt honestly i would go with a conventional buckle style .

Sjones , i note your in waxahachie , so check your yellow pages , and if not there check DFW area for a saddle shop , tell them you need a heavy contour belt ( a good belt looks like a strung longbow ) and i bet you will find a maker there that will have it within a day or two for that money .

btw how long you lived there ? i used to have an LE friend down there with dps .

In that case and if going with a leather belt I would check out the belt man. Awesome belts at a great price and in your price range too that take about 3 weeks to get to your door, can't beat it with a stick.

I have a Rafter S belt. Nice work, great price and they told me the same delivery time but I got it in three weeks. Of course, I might just have been lucky!

You might try one of these.

Looper Leather
This is there wholesale website (they don't have there retail site up yet) but they do sell retail.

It's a kydex lined leather belt. I havn't used one but they are a nice looking and very stiff belt. A lot of local people rave about them. I think they were around $30 bucks last time I was in there. If they have your size in stock it should ship pretty quick. Usually they have a lot on the rack.

Galls catalog has an Akers belt for around $38. I've been using two, one black & one brown. Nice looking dress belts, that also work with jeans. They are leather with a plastic stiffener.

+1 on Akers - I bought one in Black w/nickel buckle - liked it so much I bought a brown w/brass buckle a week later! Great value! Looks nice with jeans or slacks

I got mine at

Hello Dog, yes this is an excellent belt, I have used one for a year now, they certainly are a good deal!

+1 on Looper Leather - Kydex lined wrapped in leather gun belt. Belt is worn everyday with no problems and for the guarantee on the belt, it makes it that much sweeter.

I found my receipt, but it only showed the total of the two things I purchased there. I have to say it was between $25-$30.
